    I Laughed, I Cried (No Really, I Did) I Loved It!

    The Writing: I know I said this about Kirby's first novel Moonglass, but it must be stated again: She is a great writer plain and simple! Kirby can take what other's seem to bungle, and instead wrap it up with poetic conciseness that keeps the story moving, the reader fully enveloped in the moment and all the while you feel as if you are cruising along at a nice easy pace. She writes in such a way that you truly believe the characters point of view and experiences. If she is describing grief, nervousness, the scenery on the road or what it's like to see a place for the first time, you feel like this must have been how Kirby felt in her own life to write with such a sense of authentic trueness. Her word imagery pulls you into a scene that is easy to visualize complete with emotion and the necessary details to keep you turning the page. As my 60-something year old retired father said when he read one of Kirby's novel "That girl's a professional alright". Family Is Where Your Heart Is: Kirby paints a picture of the older brother every girl always wanted-Someone who was always looking out for them, but not willing to make a big deal out of it; The kind of brother that every mother imagines her son to be when she finds out that her first child will be a boy-A defender of the family. I believe this aspect appeals to most of us out there either because we've always wanted that or never really had it. I also love that Finn and Rusty had their own family bond even though they were just friends. In life you don't always get to pick your family members, but true friends can more than make up for gaps left by the unfortunate events that can happen in life. This message is woven through out the book as Rusty and Honor's odyssey unfolds revealing a closeness that surprises them both. The Crush: The crush aspect of this story makes me so awkward and nervous, I might as well have had a crush on Rusty myself. I love the fact the Honor knows him all to well, but just can't help herself from letting her thoughts get the best of her. I love Rusty's cockiness mixed with the realization that this is not the 8 year old little sister that use to follow them around BUT that he still holds onto the respect he has for his best friends little sister.

    I absolutely love Jessi Kirby. Don't hesitate to read this book.

    I absolutely love Jessi Kirby. Don't hesitate to read this book. It really pulls on your heart strings.. and i was waiting every day for this book to come out since her first book Moonglass. Moonglass and In Honor have both found their way into my heart. She creates words for feelings, that really can't be described. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

    Loved It!

    When I first heard of In Honor I had high hopes, there was just something about the concept that resonated with me. Than I read Kirby's debut novel, Moonglass, and was disappointed. I don't know if it was my mood that day or what, but Moonglass failed to impress me. After reading some of my giddy anticipation for In Honor faded.

    I shouldn't have worried. In Honor lived up to all my early expectations. I read it through in one sitting and was disappointed when the story ended. Kirby did an excellent job of creating interesting characters, sending them on an exciting road trip, and making sure there were plenty of sparks. There's also a titch of a mystery regarding what happened between the main character's brother and his best friend which does get answered.

    My only real complaint with the book was the ending, which I felt was bit abrupt. I wanted to know what was going to happen next and was disappointed. Guess I'll have to let my imagination take over.

    An Amazing story that had me laughing and crying all night! I picked up the book and didn't put it down till I had finished it. Made me cherish the relationship with my brother. The story is told with such detail it felt like I was in the car with them! A must read!
